Former Congressman and Presidential Candidate says, “No Policy… has come Out of Trump’s Mouth”!


Former Republican Congressman and Libertarian candidate for President, Bob Barr (R-GA), had some tough words for Donald Trump and his supporters this past week. Barr was a guest on MSNBC when he was asked if GOP voters were falling for Trump’s cult of personality as opposed to siding with his policy ideas. Barr was quick to point out that, in his mind, this MUST all be about personality over policy because “no policy… has come out of Trump’s mouth”!

One thing you don’t want in a party going into a fall election is a pig and a poke.”

“People need to know more about him, because if he were to win the nomination, and, yet, still amass all of the details of his life and his policies, we go into the general election not knowing who we have as a candidate,” Barr told MSNBC.

Barr had more to say in the aftermath of the most recent GOP debate where he articulated great confidence in how Ted Cruz would perform in Tuesday’s “SEC Primary”.
